10 cool things you should know about Virgin Voyages

Ahoy sailors! Virgin Voyages is finally here, so we've got 10 cool things you should know.

 

Adults only

Kids clubs are a distant memory when you're on board. Scarlet Lady is strictly for over 18s, so you can release your inner child, not look after one.

 

Tattoos on board

Commemorate your epic voyage with a permanent reminder of the good times. Take a trip to Squid Ink, the on board tattoo studio, for a kick-aft design.


 

No buffets or set dining times

Say bye to the buffet. All food served on board is made to order with no assigned seating and no set dining times. Enjoy over 20 eating options, ranging from Korean BBQ and Mediterranean small plates to bento boxes and fresh handmade pasta. Plus, it's all included in your voyage fare. Sealicious.


 

Clever cabins

The cabins are tricked out with the latest tech, including air-con, lighting and curtain settings which auto-adjust when a sailor steps out of the cabin. Switch up your space for entertaining with the first-ever transforming cabin-bed or relax with a film of your choice, selected straight from your personal tablet. Oh, and if you’ve got pizza cravings at 2am, get a pepperoni delivered straight to your door.


 

Extended hours in port

Land ho! If you can tear yourself away from the entertainment on board, step ashore for some truly awesome experiences. With voyages to Key West, the Dominican Republic and Mexico (so far) and extended hours in port (including overnight stays) you can discover the secrets of the cities after dark.

 

Zero single-use plastic

'No more single-use plastics' is just the start of Virgin Voyages' commitment to sustainable sailing. Newly-built, state-of-the-art and eco-friendly Scarlet Lady uses cutting-edge technology so you can concentrate on leaving your footprints in the sand and not on the planet.

 

Peak-a-view shower

In all four Mega RockStar Suites you’ll find an open-air shower on the terrace so you can wash with a view. Fancy bubbles with your bubbles? You can get a champagne holder in your shower. All you have to do is ask.


 

Style at sea

All sailors will enjoy unlimited WiFi, no dining cover charges, group workouts and gratuity included, all on Virgin Voyages. Hull yeah!

 

Not-so-secret location — Bimini

Previously a secret destination on the itinerary, the island of Bimini is where Virgin Voyages have their very own private beach club. Think peaceful yoga and meditation in the mornings, with DJ-led pool parties in the afternoon and you'll have a sense of the right picture.

In fact, THE Mark Ronson is curating the music at the Beach Club and will be performaning there in 2020. Admittance is strictly Scarlet Lady sailors only, so this is a party you don’t want to miss. 

 

RockStar Suites

Party like a Rockstar in one of Scarlet Lady’s 78 suites. Think lavish marble bathrooms, private terraces, outdoor hot tubs and music rooms stocked with electric guitars that are fit for rock-and-roll royalty.
